Beautiful morning here in Neiderhasli.

The sun shines strongly (die Sonne scheint stark), and the air is clear, fresh and bright. Everything looks shiny and new.

Oh, and the basturd wot bumped into my parked car last week, and failed to leave a note, has been fingered by a concerned and community-minded neighbour wot seed 'im do the terrible deed. Nowt more concerned and community-mided than a neighbour of the Swiss persuasion. Daft sod parked here again last night, so I left a wee note on his car this morning: "Come in ZH199732, yer time is up".

One shall report events as they unfold.

One understands that in your present Bailywick Mr Ric, ones vehicle registration is ones property for life, and one can purchse a book containing names and addresses next to regiistration numbers, makes it easy to track down and admonish folks who cut one up in traffic or dunch one vehicle when parking.
Good idea, one thougherly approves, might make for better mannered drivers,

The Swiss vehicle registration is indeed allocated to a particular person for life, Herr D.

That makes it understandable why most Swiss protect the reputation of their vehicle registration with the same fervour as they would protect their own good name, and their own good knee-caps. Said Swiss driver of a large blue Audi automobile has already failed to protect the reputation of his vehicle registration and personal name. One waits to see if he chooses to protect the latter.

In a way, one hopes not.

Mr ZH199732 has called.

Mrs Capucho did the translations, seeing as my Swiss-German is little better than my Xhosi. Still, there was a minor nod towards contrition: "didn't fink I'd dun any damage, misses", quoth he in his Swiss patois, "but I see I bin remiss". So, we're gonna get a quote from the local Audi dealer (AMAG AG, and therein lies another anecdote, but I shall resist the temptation to digress. For once) and hope the cost is high enough to spoil his Christmas.

Fcuking hit 'n' runner git.

We've got him nailed.

Good stuff Mr Ric, twould be wise to put the Machette back in its sheath and return it to he top of the cupboard, you shouldn't need it now, leastwise not until you return to the mother country on leave.
Tiz always shrewd to hang on to these items though, one never knows.

TimS will be there a while I think; being three-legged it takes that much longer to get legless.

Hmmm, Is it just me??The Nutcracker is on BBC1 at the mo,what the **** is that all about, don't do zip for me I'm afraid, what are people in the audience laughing at? bloody nora! just as well sombody actually funny like Eddy Izard isn't on the stage there would be dozens of cases of apoplexy.
Guess one must be a phillistein,hmmm some bints with nice legs poncing about on the stage now,thats a bit berra, oh and they are playing the cadburys dairy milk tune now.
"Everyones a fruit and nut case,dee dee dum"



Trouble is Samson and Delilah is on tother side, after watching it for five minutes it has now arrived at the top of ones top ten worse movies ever made, of course it helps to have starring in it possible the two worst actors ever to con Hollywood out of a fee George Sanders and Victor Mature.
Ah Christmas Telly.

I'm back - and surprisingly complis mentis (the sobering effect of watching Man.U going to the top of the Premiership no doubt).

Will immediately attend to this matter with the application of a bottle of promising looking Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon before/during/after a roast chicken dinner.

edited to eradicate evidence that I might not be totally complis mentis !!!

Tiz a little know fact that if one goes on the waggon for seven years, at the end of that period one shall be the owner of a brand new gleaming liver, every single drink corrupted cell will has been replaced by a brand new pristine liver cell, then of course one can head to the pub and do a George Best all over again.
In fact every seven years one has a new body, all cells having been replaced,apart from Brain cells that is,works fine for three, body changes but by the third we get duplication errors creeping in,and by the sixth,the replacement and copying system is well and truly fecked, thats when bits start to hurt stop doing what they are supposed to do they begin to hurt and drop off or out.
The reason being of course that mommy nature did not intend us talking monkeys to last longer than five body changes.
Sad but true.


One has just made a good strong pot of tea and one has a platefull of brownbread and butter thickly spread with Lemon Curd on ones lap, Yummy, one is a simple soul grub wise.

Mr D This is something one can personally confirm. On my fifth duplication circa 35 some piece of DNA got tangled up and one started to fall apart. One's desire to compete in Iron Man contests dwindled and ones ability to master new tasks fell into abeyance. One became overly familiar with the couch. Subsequent reincarnations have all gone from bad to worse. One is now totally fecked. But you provided great comfort in excluding the Brain. As is evident - one is sure that this organ is in pristine nick. Perhaps this goes to prove the saying " the mind is willing but the body is weak"

Younger, less incarnated folks are still able to dive into the balmy depths of tropical seas. One envies them.

I hadn't realized that cows still knew how to put milk in glass bottles. Over here it always comes in paper cartons or plastic bottles.

Just thinking, this thread will prolly be the standard reference for Social Anthopologists studying early 21st century attitudes interests and opinions, 500 years from now.
Thousands of mind numbingly boring Phd thesis, thesseeses thesees, Phd thingies on the TRRBATPSOIT will be produced and shelved unread to molder away to dust, just like they are now
Makes yer think dunnit,

Paper will have been outlawed by then, so thesiseseses will not be a waste of anything more than peoples' time.

And anyhow, what makes you think the PhD will still exist?

The researchers will probably be more interested in the delicate melodies of today's rap, techno, and heavy metal. Though it and Vivaldi will both be considered hopelessly archaic and boring.

One is rather glum at looking out of the window and seeing a part built log cabin. The joys of Lapland have not made themselves available, since the cabin is in my neighbour's garden and I understand will be used for guests to reside in.

One has a contact number for the local planning dept and is not afraid to use it.

More importantly, dogs are second citizens to the horse. This is the impression given by the fact that dogs owners must clear dog poo, yet horses can spread vast heaps willfully risking the lives of small children and passing motorists. How is that?
